poem for safariholics

When you've acquired a taste for dust,
The scent of our first rain,
You're hooked for life on Africa
And you'll not be right again
Till you can watch the setting sun
And hear the Jackals bark
And know that they're around you,
Waiting in the dark

When you long to see the elephants,
Or to hear the Coucals song,
When the moonrise sets
your blood on fire,
You've been away to long,
Its time to cut the traces loose
And let your heart go free
Beyond that far horizon
Where your spirit yearns to be.

This was the poem that they put on our pillows at Swala Camp! Thanks for the lovely memory.

Oh, how embarassing, I got all misty-eyed reading that.
